Hi Leo,

Thanks for the reply.  I'll give Gump2 a closer look then.

By the way - I am also interested in the Apache Depot project that is 
linked to from the Gump page.  Unfortunately there is no code or even 
developer email addresses on the page as it is in incubation.  Any idea 
when this will be available?  Does Gump use it?
